Seventeen Tone Piano Project 01


Published May 5, 2006


Recordings from the first phase of the 2006 17 Tone Piano Project at Rice University, Houston, Texas. Jacob Barton and Daniel Sedgwick play the two pianos (featuring a special appearance by Philip Cornell!), each of which is tuned to a subset of 17 equal tones per octave, such that the entire scale is accommodated between the two.

Notes

Actual (pre-composed) pieces by undergraduate Rice composers:
- A place I haven't heard, Jordan Kuspa
- Faucet Leak, Angelique Poteat
- variation V from Xenharmonic Variations on a Theme by Mozart, Jacob Barton
- Eighty-one ninth chords, Jacob Barton

The rest are improvised and vary in length. In my opinion you have to wade through a lot of muck but it's worth the gems you find that couldn't have come about otherwise.

(All musics are here for your perusal perusal and perhaps seduction into participating in the Second Phase of the 17-Tone Piano Project. If you want to write a piece to be played, do contact udderbot at gmail dot com quickly!)
